Sowing Seeds of Hope Among Tanzanian Villages

JGI's TACARE program works with villagers to develop sustainable livelihoods and improve health care and education in Kigoma villages. This holistic approach ensures villagers are better-positioned to think about and work towards long-term conservation. One local woman who participated in our family planning programs said: "Thank you for giving me my life."

Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots

Founded in 1991 by Dr. Jane Goodall and a group of Tanzania students, Roots & Shoots is a global network of tens of thousands of young people in 110 countries who share a desire to create a better world. Through Roots & Shoots, young people identify problems in their communities and take action by planning and implementing community service projects on behalf of people, animals and the environment.  www.rootsandshoots.org

Illegal Commercial Bushmeat Trade

At the heart of the declining chimpanzee population is habitat loss and another, lesser known problem -- the illegal poaching of chimps and other great apes for meat. The Jane Goodall Institute works with governments and local communities to end this devastating practice.

Threats to Chimps

Chimpanzees face a number of serious threats, including habitat destruction and the illegal poaching of animals for bushmeat. Habitat loss results from commercial logging, slash-and-burn agricultural practices and various mining activities. The Jane Goodall Institute works to eliminate these threats in the fight to save this precious species.

Chimpanzee Mother and Child

Maternal bonds are a critical part of chimpanzee development. This video looks at Fifi, one of Gombe's most successful mothers, and how she cared for and nurtured her offspring.

An Adventure for Golden and Glitter

Gombe's twin females are an adventurous pair with a taste for flying termites.

Tool Use

Jane Goodall's discovery that chimpanzees make and use tools changed the way scientists defined Man. The Gombe chimpanzees fashion several kinds of tools, including probes for "fishing" termites out of mounds.
